The sign cites "recent changes related to state regulation of licensing for Craft Brewers and Brewpubs" (sic) as the cause, but to all appearances, they were far from thriving. A couple of intensely blah experiences when they opened gave me no reason to return.

    Some background on the cited legislation here.

    Annexing Maywood. :)

    Happened to be driving down 5th and noticed...

    Versatile Soul Food Cafe
    9 N 5th Ave, Maywood (ignore the google listing of 906).

    Egg rolls, Lasagna, Tacos and Tamales, Jerk Chicken and Tacos and last but not the least Soul Food.

    Certainly Versatile!

    Gonna have to drop in a give it a try. I have fond memories of a Cajun place that used to be in the same block.

    Annexing Forest Park. :)

    Driving down Madison and noticed...

    Thai Time Restaurant
    7634 Madison St, Forest Park

    I thought I never saw it before and a little research revealed it used to be Chang Thai. I believe I even ate a meal there once.

    Anyone got any intel? I know any Thai place on Madison is eclipsed by the nearby Yum.

    Any place eclipsed by Yum Thai's got to be really awful :twisted:

    I tried pretty hard doing a cell phone search and Yum was the only place to come up .

    I think Yum was also featured in an Oak Park Boy’s outing?

    What is your favorite area Thai?

    I finally had to tell them to stop teasing and just open. They replied...
    Maybe another month.
    ???

    Shit or get off the pot!


    Was driving back from Pilsen late yesterday evening and it looked like some action happening at Mora. A few people sitting around the bar. Some employees dressed in uniform. Maybe still working out kinks? Either way the placed looked open, but on reflection could've been just ironing out aspects of operation. It is a great-looking spot though.

    Mora Asian Kitchen has opened its third location, following restaurants in Bolingbrook and Plainfield. The Pan Asian restaurant features Korean, Chinese, and sushi. 201 Harrison Street, Oak Park.

    I have been there. I thought the wings (spicy) were great. Also, had some sushi rolls which were good. The green bean could have been amazing if they were not under cooked. The pork belly was over cooked and dry. Over all a mixed experience but sometimes it takes a while for everything to click. Overall, I'd say get the wings.
